4. Follow through

As I mentioned before, children WILL press the limits to see what they can get away with. You must, as the parent, lay down rules, and consequences that will ensue should your child break these rules. And, if that occurs, you need to follow through with the consequence. Punishments aren't scare tactics, rather, they teach children that when they do something wrong, there is a price to pay.
